The GG sat on Bill’s Birch Point Beach Bank Bench under a couple of umbrellas. I sat with my cousin in the hollow in front of the Old Cabin. He eventually joined us. It was too hot on the bench this afternoon.

Eventually I headed up to the moomin to make one of our fave versions of shrimp scampi. I got released from work a couple hours early today. It was always typical for us to get released early the day before a holiday. Since the pandemic I think that tradition has gotten somewhat lost in the shuffle. I knew that I would not be very productive today and I wasn’t afraid to say that to the folks I work with. Not only is Monday a holiday, I am off for the rest of that week and the following Monday. Vacation mode.

The cousin-neighbors to the west joined us on the moomindeck after dinner until darkness fell. And that is about all I have today except that after looking at some fly-ish insects that seem to be embedded in one of the living room curtains ALL SUMMER, I had an epiphany! Hey, I can WASH these curtains. So I have added the living room curtains to the end-of-summer laundry agenda for next week. I’m trying to think when the last time they’ve been washed. Certainly not since The Commander died. And I’m not sure when she might have laundered them before that… … … It’s time.

G’night, KW

    It was a little cooler day down here on da planet. The 110thou filled stadium for the home football game tomorrow, should heat things up a-bit. It should be a should win, but… Must be rather warm up there to require 2 umbrellas to shield, ‘him self’, from all that heat… We are very prone to sunburn and it’s long term effects. Looks like a good spot to see da boats though. Do they honk?

    How nice to have a stretch of vacation to look forward to! I washed my older daughter’s curtains a few years ago and they were filthy. I probably should do so again!
